"today in the bay" starts right now. and a very good morning to you. thanks so much for joining us, i'm laura garcia-cannon. >> starting to become an early week trend. the case of the mondays means the case of rain in the bay area. kari hall is tracking that and how were our totals, kari? >> most areas getting half an inch of rain and a nice way to start out the week with the soaking of rain. now it's starting to dry out and feeling much cooler in the north bay. it's 35 degrees and 47 degrees in san francisco and the east bay and the peninsula. today expect highs in the low 60s and a few mid-60s there in the north bay and i'll detail that and a look ahead to the rest of the week, coming up. but let's check in now with mike and how is it looking at the bay bridge toll plaza? >> someone backing up. not a big backup, one van was backing backing. don't ever back up. continue through and take care of it with the folks at the toll gate. note crash and as we look at the map, a nice, easy drive.
5:01 am
great drive all around. that ladder still reported in the slow lane. the only thing reported and then maybe a quick traffic break. back to you. breaking overnight, a terrifying scene to wake up to. police say an suv lost control, as you see, it is embedded inside of a house. it crashed into the garage and in the process pinning the woman who was sleeping there underneath the car. the scene off san leandro off farnsworth and purdue street still under investigation. >> can you imagine waking up to that? bob redell is there live. do police know what might have led up to this? >> laura and sam, they're not saying, at least not yet. san leandro police will look into whether or not the person, the driver of the suv who crashed into the side of the home here in san leandro to find out whether or not he was under the influence or some other factor that caused him talose control of his suv. this was around 9:30 last night.
5:02 am
a witness believes he was traveling around 100 miles an hour as he came down farnsworth, clipped a car, jumped a curb and careened into the side of that garage, which had been convert under to a bedroom for the family's 25-year-old deuter. she ended up pinned underneath the suv as her family frantically tried to rescue her. >> we just heard the dad screaming, oh, my god, my daughter. she's in the garage. >> the fire department pulled the woman to safety and had her taken to the hospital with serious injuries. the driver also transported but last week spoke with police have not been taken into custody. several people live in this house. we believe that the red cross will be helping them until their home is made safe, again. reporting live here in san leandro, bob redell. >> do we know the relationship between the people living in the house and the woman sleeping in the garage? >> the 25-year-old woman was their adult daughter. >> thank you, bob. now, to another neighborhood
5:03 am
turned upside down. a deadly hostage standoff that unfolded in san jose on monday. in the end, the gunman and a hostage are dead and an officer is also wounded. "today in the bay" kris sanchez joins us live. we're learning more about this tense standoff that basically stopped things in this neighborhood for all afternoon. >> right. it's all quiet right here right now, sam. but the neighbors say that when this is all developing last night their neighborhood really did feel like a war zone. we know that a man took a woman hostage inside this quaint little home and it did not end well for either of them. an officer who was crazed by a bullet. san jose police say they first got the call about a hostage situation around 2:00 in the afternoon. that there was a suspect in that home and that suspect had reportedly fired two shots into the ground even before he went into that home to hold that woman against her will. immediately, police set up a perimeter and evacuated neighbors from the surrounding areas because it was a tense situation and police were then
5:04 am
trying to make contact with the man inside. the chp even shut down the freeway ramp to highway 85 for some time to sort of contain the situation. we are not confirming how the suspect and the woman know each other, but neighbors say the standoff was really something unlike any of them have seen before. about three hours after the standoff started, police say the man emerged from his home with a handgun and that's when shots were fired and the suspect fell. when officers rushed into the home at that time, it was too late and that woman was no longer alive. >> stunned. i've lived here for about 30 years and i can't recall anything like this happening in my neighborhood. >> now, san jose police officer was crazed by a bullet, but we are told that his injuries are nonlife threatening and he will survive. and students at a nearby middle school were on locked down during that standoff. they'll likely be talking about this for much of the morning. kris sanchez, "today in the
5:05 am
bay." it is 5:04 right now. fed up with car break-ins. two san francisco club promoters are taking matters into their own hands and teaming up to handle security outside their shows. but numbers are slipping. regulars told them routine smash and grabs near 11th and fulsome are keeping them at home. now, promoters are extending their security plan into the neighborhood by hiring a guard to roam the streets. >> i'm the romer and make sure the cars don't get broken into and usually they go, no, it's okay, it's fine. >> after months of one man patrols, promoters believe it's helping. people are talking about the shows and not all the shattered glass. tonight at 11:00, we investigate what is behind the spike in car break-ins and what made breaking into cars more enticing for thieves. no more headache.
5:06 am
that is the word from u.s. soccer when it comes to kids on the field. all in an effort to reduce the number of concussions associated with youth soccer players. "today in the bay" stephanie chuang joining us live and this new protocol follows litigation fa fil filed here in san francisco. >> over the concern of concussions resolved in a settlement announced just this week. along with it, the u.s. soccer federation announcing rules that it is bringing now to u.s. youth national teams. it bans soccer players ten years and younger from heading ever. u.s. soccer says players 11 to 13 will also only allowed to head the ball during games and said there should be medical professionals on the field and not coaches who decide whether a player can stay in the game. these are moves to do several things. improve concussion awareness and education is at the top of the list. build more on how to manage

5:09 am
0.6 and san francisco had 0.3 it came down fast and furious and created some slippery conditions as a lot of people were heading to work yesterday. and now it's cool, dry, highs today topping out in the mid to upper 60s or mid up to 50s. upper 50s, lower 60s. 65 degrees today in pittsburg. mike? >> you have it just the way i like it. we're looking over here to the south bay where traffic flows just like we like it, as well. little sheen on the roadway, kari, we're talking about. silicon valley map. the rain traveled through this portion of the bay. the roadways, though, the freeways. they're just damp. watch those transitions. no big incidents reported around the bay and that ladder has cleared from the interchange. quick look at oakland there. 880 shows you the volume. very manageable through this area. back to you. >> thank you, mike. coming up, taking action for higher wages. the strikes that could impact

5:13 am
what does this round hold? this time in milwaukee. >> maybe some good sound clips from them, as well. the focus of the debate is expected to be the economy, but questions about ben carson's past might take center stage on this one. tracie potts live in washington with a preview of what we can expect. good morning, tracie. >> hey, laura and sam. the questions have come up since the last debate and he answered them, but a lot of concerns of what he said and what he did and did not do many years ago. that could come up tonight. jeb bush and marco rubio got into it at the last debate and this time they're going after the same key endorsement. here's what it looks like at the historic milwaukee theater ahead of tonight's debate with donald trump and ben carson center stage. trump going after carson and marco rubio at a late-night rally in illinois. >> these are people with no experience. these are people that never met a payroll. >> reporter: carson face s toug

5:15 am
they could also talk about interest rates. donald trump has said that the fed should be boosting rates now that the economy is doing better. >> tracie, many hope the issues are what we're talking about. fast food workers are organizing all-day strikes around the bay area. part of a nationwide action. today's strike involves workers in 270 different cities. in the bay area, that includes at least one restaurant in san jose, san francisco and oakland. fast food workers are generally among the lowest paid workers anywhere. the fast food restaurants argue that the typical entry level position can often lead to much better jobs else where in the workforce. we've all probably done this. you take a picture of your friends and you promise to send it to them. >> only to forget. >> scott mcgrew is working a way to remind you, hey, send that photo. >> facebook has gotten smart
5:16 am
enough, sam. it knows who your friend are and what they look like. photo magic will notice you have taken a picture of your friends and say, hey, send them the picture. these are my stock photo friends. the service will roll out slowly to users and you do have to give it permission to do this, to access the information from your phone's camera. like with so many things with facebook, when you start it it kind of sounds creepy and then after a while you get used to it and it sounds entirely normal. swiss watchmaker is working with google android here in town just released a smart watch product. this is not a real screen. this is a computer screen. a 1,500 there computerized time piece. looks like a traditional watch more or less. the part i really like, if you decide after several years you don't like it, they'll give you credit towards one of their regular mechanical watches. let's check your news before the bell. let's turn to landon dowdy at
5:17 am
cnbc world headquarters. good morning, landon. >> hey, scott, good morning to you. more red arrows on wall street afters suffered their worst day in six weeks on monday. the dow is back in the red for the year and investors are readjusting their portfolios on fears that the fed could pull the trigger on an interest rate hike next month. dow falling 179 points to 17730. the nasdaq losing 51 to 1595. scott, back over to you. >> thank you. target has decided to go along with other stores and be open on thanksgiving. opening up at 6:00 thanksgiving night. cnbc says target will have interesting ideas like buy an ipad and get a gift card. some like target are advertising they're open and other like rei are going out of the way to let you know they will not be open. not on thanksgiving and not on the day after thanksgiving. i've been looking at data and i'll bring it to you another
5:18 am
day, sam and laura. not only in the bay area not only do shoppers not only particularly approve of being open on thanksgiving, but they don't shop on thanksgiving. black friday & internet and delivery, we sort of shop all year round for the holidays more than we used to. >> get what you want when you want it. >> you would never be able to tell based on our coverage, though. >> we thrive on that stuff. we love it. >> bob redell at whatever shopping center. it's true. kind of amazing. have you ever camped out? >> i have never camped out. i rarely camp out when it's called camping. >> he's a glamper. >> exactly. >> you could totally see mike with the air conditioning. >> called room service, baby. >> this morning you need the heater because it is really cool out there. and this is the kind of weather we'll have to get used to as we head deeper into fall. as we take a live look outside right now and san francisco, you can see that it's nice and quiet. no rain and we won't see that
5:19 am
for a few more days we dry out from the heavy downpours we had yesterday and it's now 47 degrees in san francisco and the peninsula. the south bay at 45 degrees and let's take a closer look there where we have 45 grees now at santa theresa and 43 degrees downtown and allenrock park at 46 degrees. and north bay 46 degrees. as we go through the day, here's your morning commute. and just pick out where you live and keep an eye on that. we will start out with a few clouds here and there, but all of thatting out by lunchtime. and if you're heading outside for lunch, taking a walk down the street to the sandwich shop, it will be cool still in the up toer 50s all across the bay area. some of us making it into the low 60s and by the time you drive home, our temperature starts to dip back to right around 60 degrees. so, mostly sunny and breezy. look for a high of 63 degrees in palo alto and financial district

5:32 am
>> thank you very much, bob. now to a deadly hostage standoff that unfolded in a quiet south bay neighborhood. police say an officer is wounded and the gunman and his female hostage are dead this morning. "today in the bay" kris sanchez joins us live this morning. neighbors describe the scene as a war zone. >> they say it was really like a war zone which is the s.w.a.t unit for the san jose police department and forced from their homes and in the end it was not enough to save the life of that woman who was taken hostage in home right here behind me. now, san jose police first got that call about the hostage situation about 2:00 in the afternoon when the suspect entered the home. police say before he went into the home and took that woman by force, he fired two shots into the ground. immediately police set up a perimeter, evacuated neighbors from the surrounding homes so that police could try to make, come up with a plan to get to the man inside. the chp even shut down the
5:33 am
freeway ramp to highway 85 for a while just to contain the situation. we're not confirming how the suspect and the woman he took hostage knew each other, but neighbors say the standoff was really unlike anything they've seen in this before. about three hours after the standoff started, it was over. police say the man came out of the home with a handgun there were shots exchanged and then the suspect fell. officers rushed into the home, but by that point, it was too late. >> stunned. i've lived here for about 30 years and i can't recall anything like this happening in my neighborhood. >> now, you mentions that there was a san jose police officer who was shot. he was crazed by a bullet and his injuries are nonlife threatening. students at a nearby high school were on lock down for the afternoon hours as they were doing their activities. certainly we predict that they'll be talking about, today. in san jose, kris sanchez, "today in the bay."
5:34 am
>> thank you very much, kris. 5:33. happening today the debate ramps up about fan safety and alcohol sales at levi stadium. they'll meet to further discuss ways for alcohol induced violence. one idea to cut off alcohol sales at halftime instead of after the third quarter. three men have been charged with assaulting a minnesota fan. police say they've responded to 24 reports of assault since the stadium opened last year. the bay area's largest city is back on line this morning after a massive cyberattack slowed things down for days. let's bring in our business and techer scott mcgrew now with a much closer look at what happened. scott, you say this is probably not the work of professionals. >> yeah, because of the type of hack, sam. we're not talking about the deep invasion into data that we'd see when we're -- this was a denial of service attack. really, the oldest and most simple sort of internet attack. it knocked the police department's website off line
5:35 am
for a while. now, in a denial of service attack, hackers send massive amounts of data to one site overming it and shutting it down. if this were tennis, you could think of the web server as serena williams and the attack is a tennis ball machine. one machine is fine and 1,000 machines not so much. we're talking not about an invasive attack that steals data as much as an annoying hack that causes sites to stall. now, sam, the obvious question here is why. why did this happen? who was doing it? that's not clear, but the city of san jose says they've been able to make the adjustments, hand that extra data and the sites are back up online this morning. >> but it was crippling enough and lasted several days before they could get it back. >> thank you very much, scott mcgrew from our newsroom. happening today the city of san jose considering easing the brakes a bit and taxi drivers not thrilled about that.
5:36 am
planning to respond with anotherer strike than the ones they staged yesterday. as we showed you yesterday, hundreds of drivers held a protest and at maneta international airport that left many travelers skranded. make sure you contact someone. south bay taxi drivers fuming over a city plan to lift regulations against ride-sharing companies. one involves fingerprinting requirements which taxi drivers have to follow. to coincide, taxi drivers plan to expand their strike citywide. they're promising to at least double the number of drivers taking part. no more heading. that's the word from u.s. soccer when it comes to kids on the field. it's all in an effort to reduce the number of concussions for youth soccer players. "today in the bay" stephanie chuang live in our newsroom. this protocol follows litigation that was filed, i understand, in
5:37 am
san francisco. >> that's right. players and parents sued u.s. soccer over the issue of concussion on the field. they didn't want monetary damages, but they wanted changes to the rules and they got. the settlement was announced yesterday and the u.s. soccer federation announced new guidelines for u.s. youth national teams. we're taking mainly three things. banning soccer players ten years and younger from ever heading the ball. limiting players 11 to 13 to head the ball only during games, not practice. and instead of coaches having medical professionals on the field can stay in the game. u.s. soccer says these rules are really to accomplish a couple things. first, improve concussion awareness and education and also to build more around on how to manage concussion. u.s. soccer says it consult would the medical science community in creating the new protocols and guidelines. there are, of course, reactions. we heard from social media mike vincent tweeting, this is why the u.s. will never be good.
5:38 am
response from taylor trelmen who told you, can't tell you how emotional i am. that progress is being made and can't wait to see it come to fruition. from 2002 to 2008 or 2009, but his career was ended by a serious concussion. a very personal issue for the now 35-year-old. live here in our san francisco newsroom, stephanie drrxchuang, "today in the bay." >> the stage is set for the latest round of gop political fireworks. tonight political contenders take part in their histdebate. once again focus on the economy, but many expect gop frontrunner ben carson to get a dose of questions this time around, including something about his life history. carson's claims have been facing tough scrutiny. opponents including christy and mike huckabee say it's all part of the job description.
5:39 am
>> responsible for the personal stories we tell about our lives. >> you ain't seen nothing yet. >> as with other debates, there will be an undercard debate. the main debate scheduled to start at 6:00 p.m. pacific. "wall street journal" and fox business news are moderating. plenty of snow activity blanketing the sierra and reno this morning. all of that from yesterday's storm that hit the bay area. as you can imagine, skiers, snowboard, they were delighted by the wintry conditions after four years of drought. here in the bay area, no snow but feel like winter today. meteorologist kari hall joining us now. >> there may be freezing temperatures for north bay interior valleys. now, as we start out, we're all feeling the chill and as we go through the day, it just warms up a bit, but a lot of sunshine. and at noon, we're still in the 50s. in the peninsula 57 degrees and
5:40 am
san francisco 58 degrees and east bay 59 and by 4:00 as you're heading home, in the lower 60s. the east bay 64 and the tri-valley 63 degrees. a little bit more comfortable, but you'll probably be wearing long sleeves all day. i'll show you the rest of the forecast and a look ahead to the weekend coming up. let's check in now with to see if the metering lights are on yet. >> they are awfully on, kari. this shot doesn't look much different than a few minutes ago. we're showing the backup and the slower drive for those sensors coming off the berkeley curve and crash over there at san pablo and the off ramp was affected. watch the slowing for the off ramp and over here, there is a slow lane and consider that blocked as there is a vehicle there, as well. sounds like it might have been the spinout, but there's no rain, but there may be slicker excisions still on the road side and the surface streets. over here southbound 680 and there is a pickup reported. i don't know about lanes yet and i don't see any slowing yet. chp is slow to arrive and little
